A just-released poll from CNN (which is Hitler) shows a 10 point post-convention swing towards Republican Donald Trump, who now leads sociopath Hillary Clinton 44% to 39%. Moreover, a full 68% of voters believe the woman who left 4 Americans to die in Benghazi, and then defamed their grieving mothers as liars, is not trustworthy.
And this was before the five-alarm fire caused by the WikiLeaks dump of 22,000 Democrat National Committee emails (more are coming -- tee hee), that prove beyond any doubt that the DNC and Hillary conspired to rig the system against Bernie Sanders.
Between Trump's magnificently empathetic convention speech and these emails, Clinton probably lost the election last week.
And here's the thing… The WikiLeaks revelations about Tapper's chumminess with Team Hillary are the least of his problems. But before I get to that, let's review those emails anyway.
In the leaked emails, Jason Sehar, the producer/writer of Tapper's CNN (which is Hitler) hour appears eager and willing to set up scripted appearances with DNC officials:

Thanks for facilitating Luis coming on today, and bearing with us through a meelee of GOP nonsense and cancellations and all that.
Any particular points he'll want to make? We're gonna stay Dem focused...

Via Tumblr, Tapper's response was woefully inadequate and more than a little dishonest:
Since I believe in transparency, let me address the contents. …
“Any particular points he’ll want to make?” is a fairly standard question – producers and reporters ask it all the time of Democrats, Republicans, everyone, to make sure we don’t miss out on news-making opportunities.
Have we asked that question of Trump campaign staffers? Absolutely. Of RNC staffers? Absolutely. Of Sanders campaign staffers? Absolutely. And on and on.
Tapper's use of the word "transparency" is Orwellian. He's pretending to be transparent when all he is really doing is -- to be charitable -- explaining.
If this truly is usual-usual media behavior and Tapper truly wants to be transparent, he will release similarly-worded emails sent by his staffers this year to Republican officials. Doing so would immediately clear this matter up. It can be done by redacting anything compromising, and if it is not done it is safe to assume there are none.
But as I said this is the least of Tapper's problems. Here's his real problem…
As I've mentioned before, earlier this year, in defense of my country, I cancelled my cable package. What little of the Republican Convention I did watch was via CBSN, a free 24/7 streaming news channel.
Immediately after Trump's acceptance speech, and on more than one occasion, CBSN reported that real-time emails from the Clinton campaign made it painfully obvious that they were primarily concerned with Trump's claim that violent crime was on the rise. Of all the things Trump brought up in his speech, this is what Team Clinton was most panicked about.
Naturally, what's important to Hillary Clinton is important to Jake Tapper -- who apparently got his DNC marching orders even before Trump spoke. About an hour before Trump took the stage, but after the text of the Republican nominee's speech had been released to the media, with the Clinton campaign's talking points almost certainly in hand, Tapper attempted a shameless prebuttal of the central theme of Trump's speech.
Here is the text. Tapper's dishonesty and snark is an utter disgrace:
JAKE TAPPER (HOST): One of the things that we've heard in the Republican convention has been about crime in America. Now crime obviously, violent crime, horrific, but just empirically, according to FBI statistics, crime rates have been going down for decades. How can the Republicans make the argument that somehow it's more dangerous today when the facts don't back that up?
PAUL MANAFORT (TRUMP CAMPAIGN MANAGER): People don't feel safe in their neighborhoods. I'm not sure what statistics you're talking about. But I know for a fact the information we see --
TAPPER: FBI statistics.
MANAFORT: Well the FBI certainly is suspect these days after what they just did with Hillary Clinton. But as far as crime in the neighborhoods, people don't feel safe. They're not safe in their neighborhoods and the crime that you see is because no one feels as if the system is protecting their interest. We think it's an issue that's contrast very strongly with what Obama has done in the White House and what Clinton stands for, and we're going to be talking about it tonight.
TAPPER: I wasn't talking about feelings. I was just talking about the facts of actual violent crime.
To make Trump look dishonest, Tapper debates a flaming straw man. Trump did not say that overall crime is up. Here is what he did say, which is backed by reporting in -- of all the places -- the left-wing New York Times:
Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this Administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement.
Homicides last year increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years. In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. They are up nearly 60% in nearby Baltimore.
In the President’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2,000 have been the victims of shootings this year alone. And more than 3,600 have been killed in the Chicago area since he took office.
The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50% compared to this point last year. Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.
The Clintons eventually destroy everyone in their wake. How in the world they convinced Jake Tapper, who until now was highly regarded as one of the few good journalists working today, to pour gasoline over his head and light a road flare, is beyond me. But that is exactly what he did.
And today Tapper has been exposed as just another dishonest, left-wing CNN (which is Hitler) hack.
P.S. There is no doubt in my mind that the elite American media knew full well and covered up the fact that the DNC was conspiring against Bernie Sanders. This is why WikiLeaks.
Because our corrupt, useless media refuses to do its job, it leaves a vacuum for rogue actors to appear on the stage and do it for them.
